Confidentiality will be discussed with you by the therapist at the first session. Sessions are confidential and we do not usually communicate with anyone outside the IFT unless requested by the client. Occasionally we may feel that it would be useful for some information to be shared and we will discuss this with you. However, in the event of serious concern for the immediate safety of someone it might be necessary to consult another service. Wherever possible this would be discussed with you first. However, on rare occasions it might be necessary to proceed either without prior discussion or without the clients’ agreement. We are bound by our code of ethics regarding the safeguarding of vulnerable populations.
All records are kept securely. Clients may have access to their own records. This access would be at IFT and under the supervision of a member of staff. Please see IFT Client Data Protection Policy
